Russian Economic Reform

About this site

 

This is my personal site about economic reform and developments in Russia, or involving Russia.

 

I am Head/Director of new “International Centre for Eurasian Research”, School of Public Policy, RANEPA (Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration), Moscow.

Before coming to Moscow, I lived in China for two years, and wrote a “White Paper” for AustCham (Australian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai) on reform of the Chinese financial sector. This report was publicly launched in Shanghai on 26 February 2016 by the Australian Treasurer, Scott Morrison.

Prior to that, I was research consultant to “Shanghai Institute of International Financial Centre (SIIFC), Shanghai University of Finance and Economics”.

Before moving to China, I lived in Moscow for a number of years.

 

Language skills are: Russian (“advanced”​ business reading, but speak with bad grammar); Chinese (speak and read Mandarin at “lower intermediate” level)

 

I wrote a 100,000 word history based organizational psychology book entitled “Dictatorial CEOs and their Lieutenants: Inside the Executive Suites of Napoleon, Stalin, Ataturk, Mussolini, Hitler and Mao”. An ex-Governor (CEO) of Reserve Bank of Australia wrote that this book is: “Unorthodox in style, but rich in substance”.

Prior to the above, I was Chief Economist of HSBC (Australia) and a former economist at the Reserve Bank of Australia, the Treasury, and the Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet. I was heavily involved in tax reform as Economics and Taxation Policy Adviser with a major Australian business association..

 

I have degrees on economics and history.
